    Nifty :D I was able to get a basically playable framerate on my 386DX-40 in half-resolution mode, IIRC - bumping the cache up from 128KB to 256KB made a very noticeable difference. Having a fast...

    Later models were faster, for the most part, but as Wikipedia states, the original "straight-8" had a memory cycle time of 1.5 μs (the 8/e was 1.2 μs, as DrCharles notes.) Most of the main-group...

    Yeah, if nothing else I can always cannibalize it for a nice chassis/front panel if I ever get around to, say, that TMS-99105 project I've had on the back burner forever...though I'll wait and see...

    So what the heck did I just pick up?

    Ran into this at the electronics-surplus store just down the way from my workplace and grabbed it on the cheap. I don't actually know what it is, but the labels on the switches make it look a hell of...

    Well, it was a long time coming, and fortunately for once in my life I'm in a position where this is only an inconvenience and not cause for a sudden panic attack. Still, it was a bummer to miss VCFW...

    Multiplying an expression in parentheses by the value immediately outside of the parentheses is standard, sure - but even then, you evaluate the inside expression before multiplying (unless it...

    Wait, am I following this discussion correctly, in that there are people who are seriously advancing the notion that parentheses do not imply a separate grouping? What's the point of putting them...

    The levers are to release the drives so you can slide the drive carriage off the rail it sits on, yeah.

    There was a post about this on Lemon yesterday - they're having some kind of shenanigans with their hosting company. Sounds like he's got a back route set up for the moment.
